Rusty Wallace Racing Experience at Chicagoland Speedway, NASCAR Racing Experience, Driving School

Chicagoland Speedway, located in Joliet, Ill., is only 40 miles from the birthplace of automobile racing in America. The first automobile race between gasoline-powered vehicles ever held in the United States actually took place on Nov. 28, 1895, when six cars left Jackson Park in Chicago for a 54-mile race to Evanston, Ill., and back in the snow. Frank Duryea took just more than 10 hours, averaging 7.3 mph, to win the race and earn $2,000. Chicagoland Speedway has 18-degree banking in its turns. The 2,400-foot frontstretch has 11 degree banking and the backstretch, which runs 1,700 feet, is banked at 5 degrees. It takes NASCAR’s top drivers less than 30 seconds to speed around its 1.5 miles in qualifying trim – Jeff Gordon set a track record in qualifying for the 2004 Tropicana 400 at 28.886 seconds, an average speed of 186.942 mph.
